(Amazon) Workers of the World Unite

Around 200 Amazon workers, mostly of East African descent, protested outside their workplace in Minnesota. They protested against working conditions such as workers being tracked by computer and required to work at a high rate of speed, such as scanning something every 7 seconds, and the required speed is increased over time. People of East African descent make up 30–60% of the workforce at this location. December 14, 2018. (photo: Fibonacci Blue)
